"Sometimes it is difficult to appreciate and accept life in the way that it unfolds. and it is ok to be afraid of the things we have no control over. they will hurt us, maybe break us into pieces at times, but they will also Build our character and be great fuel for growth. for putting down all masks and peel down to our essence, our core. to become more and more authentic. and the more we grow, the more we may let go of the idea of perfection and find beauty in the imperfect."
